Designing successful careers for a changing world
Our Design students learn to combine personal expression and critical thinking as they create solutions that connect industry, individuals, and institutions to specific audiences and themselves to the world.
We are excited to share that in Fall 2022, we launched our revised BFA major. We have increased its capacity from 12 to 36 students and offer a more robust curriculum with greater focus on skills development and career preparation. You can learn more about the program here: https://www.wwu.edu/design/program.html.
There are exciting times ahead as the Design Department continues to adapt and grow, and we are deeply grateful for your investment in our program! Your generosity allows us to enhance our students’ education through field trips, workshops, and student showcases, as well as purchase cutting edge equipment and update our facilities, including a new motion design/animation studio. We thank you for your generosity, your trust, and your commitment to our students. Here are some other ways your contribution can help our students:
- Global field study
- Site visits to regional and national design firms
- Critical learning tools, equipment and software
Thank you for supporting our Design students!
